Katy Mills is an outlet shopping mall in Katy, Texas (USA) within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area, developed by The Mills Corporation and now owned by Simon Property Group. The mall opened on October 28, 1999[1] and hosts a variety of over 200 specialty stores. Katy Mills has about 1.3 million square feet (0.12 km²) of retail space.

The Shopping Center[edit]

Katy Mills is a one story facility that sits on 1.3 square miles (3.4 km2) of land, located just off Interstate 10 exit 741. The mall is built with a "racetrack" design and one complete pass around the mall on Katy Mills Cir. road is approximately 1 mile (1.6 km).

Popular stores include Tommy Hilfiger Company Store, Books-A-Million, Juicy Couture and Polo Ralph Lauren Company Store; some of which relocated from Sealy Outlet Center, which was supplanted by Katy Mills due to its distance from nearby Sealy. Its "Katy Field Day" food court has Burger King, a carousel, and a Rock Wall. Outside, various restaurants such as Red Lobster, Fuddruckers, TGI Friday's, and Los Cucos surround the mall.

Originally, the mall featured a Jillian's restaurant and entertainment center. It closed in 2004[2] and became Steve & Barry's, which closed in 2008. It also featured a Circuit City prototype called "The City", which opened and closed in 2008.[3]

The entire shopping mall is located within Fort Bend County, Texas, although a small portion of the parking lot is located in neighboring Harris County.[4]
